Fans At Newcastle Deserve More – Geremi


Cameroon star Geremi has come out today, following Oba Martins’ lead, and said the fans of Newcastle United are special.

Geremi – while playing for Cameroon

Geremi believes the faithful Newcastle fans are the inspiration behind the club’s survival stakes this season, in their remaining 9 games.

Newcastle play in-form Arsenal on Saturday at St. James’ Park in a 5:30 pm kick off,  in a game that is being televised live around the world.  Midfield star Geremi believes that it is possible to get a much-needed three points from the Gunners – wouldn’t that be something!

The 30-year-old Cameroon International, who has played 100 times for his country told nufcTV today:

“We know it will be a difficult game, but at home we always have a good chance of getting three points,”

“The fans are special at this club and they deserve more. That is why we fight because we know that they are there behind us.”   “It is great to play in front of these kind of people and it helps the team.”

“We have shown in the last couple of matches that there is fight and spirit in our dressing room.”   “Now also we have players come back from injury and that is a big help.”  

In fact that’s exactly what we need on Saturday before the two week international break – 3 points and a good performance, although the former is the more important piece.

It will take the lads coming out like they did against Manchester United, and then having a little more luck in getting more than one goal. That’s why we need as many goal-scorers – like Lovenkrands for example – starting in that game.

If we do get ahead, you can be sure the Newcastle crowd could take the lads on to an ultimate victory, and that would significantly lighten the mood on Tyneside – which is desperately needed.

We think we can do it – but the lads must play the game all out, and as if  their lives depended on winning – that should do it. 😀

    Yes Geremi we deserve better. Especially when we have woeful players like you at the club.

    I can’t believe Big Sam made you captain. What a joke that was.

    He doesn’t say ‘Better’ he says ‘More’.

    I think we’ve had enough.

    But in fairness, Geremi does his best when he’s on. He even occasionally has a decent game. His legs were gone before he arrived, so its not him that’s to blame, imo.

    Geremi is a player who tries to give all for the club. The only thing with Geremi is that his legs are gone (but that was before his arrival already). So blaming Geremi is not right, cause the club (esp FSA) made a mistake by getting a player who cannot produce his best form anymore.

    Geremi should be useful as cover at RB, but they (Hughton and his other tactical brainees) put him in the centre of the team, where pace is a must. And if you then know that they put the ‘magical’ Butt next to him, then you know that you’re looking for troubles (even against an average team as Hull City).

    He was good – very good – against Manure, so let’s get off his back a bit. But yes, I’m fed up with hearing it too.

    Any thoughts on starting line-ups, anyone? Is this a bit too open at the back? I’ve put Beye/Taylor, as only the management know Beye’s fitness status. Tayls has been pretty good, so I’d rather see Beye come on later if he’s not properly fit yet. Likewise Duff – put Ryan T on if he’s not ready.

    —————Harper
    Beye/S.Taylor – Colo – Bassong – Enrique
    — Duff/R.Taylor —– Butt ——-Jonas
    ———————- Owen
    ——-Lovenkrands ———–Martins

    You could swap Owen and Loverboy, but KK made this work exactly a year ago.

    Of course, it’ll never happen. We’ll be 4-4-2 and play for the break.

    anyone tell me where there was any sign of the above at Hull?
    wish they’d stick to letting there boots talk for them
